Beryl packages for Ubuntu

hello,

Sorry Seb, i know i’ve promised you to take a look on gnome-power-manager bugs, but i’m lazy and i preferred to package Beryl. Next week, i promise, i will try to fix/close some g-p-m bugs.

I tried to officially package some parts of the Beryl suite. At the moment only the packages listed below:

  • beryl-core : which provides binary + some libs
  • beryl-manager: the manager (tray applications tool to launch beryl, start different wm…)
  • beryl-plugins: which provides cake, biscuits and a coffee cup πŸ˜‰ (and sometimes plugins)
  • beryl-settings: gui configuration tool to configure beryl
  • beryl-settings-bindings: bindings to configure beryl plugins and the composite window manager. (it needs more work, patch(s) are welcome)
  • emerald: the window decorator.

All packages can be found here

(btw, i always hope in a ” people.ubuntu.com/~developer/ ” (web)service for put this kind of stuff)

NOTE:
Packages were built with pbuilder in a Debian enviroment, i know that this is not so good, but my ubuntu desktop died unexpectly (i should stop recycle old hw), and at the moment i don’t have money for buy another one so i can’t do a proper test on ubuntu (i will re-build all packages on a ubuntu chroot ASAP) πŸ™

Comments / patchs / suggestions are welcome: please send me a mail to giskard_at_ubuntu._dot_com with [BERYL-UBUNTU] as subject.

  2. Dear giskard,

    I’m afraid you forgot to put the prefix “http://” at the beginning of the link’s address and it points to this very page itself. The link’s address is now

    http://giskard.noblogs.org/post/2007/02/25/www.autistici.org/giskard/file/beryl

    and should be

    http://www.autistici.org/giskard/file/beryl

    instead (I tried this address and it works).

    Thanks for your nice work πŸ˜‰

    Francesc

    – adjusted build-dep
